Obituary: David Frank Eeles (1933-2015)

I was very sorry to hear from his family that David Eeles passed away on the 21st of September after a short illness. He had a long and productive life making pots and was in the workshop only two day before going into hospital.

The funeral will be next Thursday, 1st of October 2015. Anyone wanting more information please email: EelesFamily@aol.com

David Eeles trained at Willesden School of Arts & Crafts in London from 1947 until 1953, where he studied drawing & painting, architecture, anatomy, bookbinding, etching, engraving, lithography, lettering, terra cotta & ceramics. All of these studies have been useful in his long career as a potter.

David met his wife, Patricia in art school, where she was also studying, they were married in 1955. David started ”The Shepherds Well Pottery” on the site of the old shepherds well in the artists quarter of Hampstead London.

The pottery he was making at this time was traditional Slipware & tin glazed Majolica, fired to a temperature of 1100 degrees centigrade in an electric kiln. The decoration was drawn with liquid clay slips, coloured with metallic oxides like Iron, Manganese & Copper. The colours achieved were predominantly warm in tone. The first exhibition of work was held at the Heals Department store in London. Various shops & galleries in and around London were supplied with pottery between 1955 & 1961.

The family moved to Dorset in 1961 where they continue today.

Our deepest sympathy to Patricia and the family on their sad loss.

David Eeles 1960
